Avoid the crowds – try Snowshoeing!

If you’re looking to try something new on a ski trip or you want to avoid the crowded pistes then why not try snow-shoeing! There are plenty of walks to chose from.  Take a freshly filled baguette from the local bakery or enjoy a typical Savoyard lunch in one of the mountain refuges.

Last week we donned our snow-shoes and walked up to the Refuge de la Golèse at the Col de la Golèse.  We picked a perfect blue sky day and were quickly delayering as we commenced our ascent.  You are quickly rewarded with breath-taking views across the Grand Massif ski area, the Pointe de Sales and the Sixt-Passy National Park.  We pretty much had the path to ourselves with the exception of the occasional person ski-touring!
